Testimonials

"Community Conversations are essential to the Community because they are user-to-user events. Our creativity depends on our growth, and we need a place to keep exploring new ideas. We can bring so much to our industries by sharing our ideas, our examples, and opening up our world to share with others. Coming together is what Community is all about."

- Donnia Tabor-Hanson, Autodesk Community Expert Elite & Senior CAD/BIM Analyst

"The Community Conversations on Dynamo are an absolute highlight of my work, allowing me to get closer to the Dynamo community on a bi-weekly cadence in a way that is engaging, conversational and informal, serious but also light-hearted. It's a true reflection of a conversation that encourages attendees to speak up and engage."

- Sol Amour, Product Manager, Dynamo

Tips & Tricks are too blasé for me that is why we do Hints & Hacks. This will be about making schedules work for the project. We will discuss working verses print schedules. Get Filters to help get things in or out of schedules. How about color coding a cell if there might be missing information? Use schedules for making notes that stay aligned or need to be broken into sections. Track what views are on sheets, what their view template is and how it is named? Sheets list with parameters to put them in an order not based on sheet number can be useful and so can grouping them by type.
